Hailing from world famous stages such as Carnegie Hall and the Ryman Auditorium, Grand Ole Opry Stars and multi-award winners Dailey & Vincent return to the Cactus Theater stage on Sunday evening, August 5, 2018 at an early start time of 7 pm.
The duo is riding a wave of critical acclaim for their brand-new release, Patriots & Poets as well as their nationally broadcasted weekly TV series, The Dailey & Vincent Show, airing weekly on RFD-TV. Backed by one of the best bands on tour today and generally regarded among the most reputable and elite entertainers in American music, the sound of Dailey & Vincent is a concoction of traditional country, gospel and bluegrass blended together by the fantastically instinctive vocal blends of Dailey's tenor and Vincent's reedy harmonies.
“Stand back or face the force of nature that is this astounding ensemble,” wrote respected critic Robert K. Oermann for Music Row Magazine. “Take it from me, there’s a reason they’ve earned three Grammy nominations, won four Dove Awards, claimed an astounding 35 IBMA honors (including three as Entertainers of the Year and three as Vocal Group of the Year), multiple #1 records, a Public Television Special and their weekly TV series, The Dailey & Vincent Show, on RFD-TV featuring guest artists Vince Gill, The Oak Ridge Boys, Diamond Rio, Tanya Tucker, and more.”
Grand Ole Opry Members, five-time Grammy® award winners individually, three-time GRAMMY® award nominees collectively, four-time DOVE Award winners, and winners of 35 IBMA Awards altogether (including 3-time IBMA Entertainer of the Year Award winners and 3-Time Vocal Group of the Year Award winners), Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent, backed by one of the best bands on tour today, are some of the most reputable and elite entertainers in American music; bluegrass, traditional country and gospel music. Now on Season 3 of their nationally broadcast television series, “The Dailey & Vincent Show on RFD-TV,” Dailey & Vincent bring their music to a national audience on a weekly basis. After a decade spent performing together and with over 1,000 airings of their PBS special “Dailey & Vincent ALIVE – In Concert,” their concoction of fantastically instinctive vocal blends of Dailey’s tenor and Vincent’s reedy harmonies has gained them well-deserved praise for their own distinctive style and worldwide recognition as American Music gold. Their most recent live CD, “Dailey & Vincent ALIVE,” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass charts and remained at the top position for over 15 weeks. Prior to forming the duo in 2007, both Dailey and Vincent were already seasoned veterans in the bluegrass world, having garnered great personal success:
o Jamie Dailey – Jamie Dailey is a 4-time IBMA ‘Vocalist of the Year’ award winner. Growing up performing with family and regional groups, Dailey later became the lead vocalist and guitarist for Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver for over 10 years. In addition to the amazing harmonies of Dailey & Vincent, Dailey’s voice can also be found on several recordings by Dolly Parton, Ricky Skaggs, and Russell Moore.
o Darrin Vincent – Since beginning to perform at the age of two with his family band, The Sally Mountain Show, Vincent has accumulated 5 GRAMMY Awards and has been voted Bluegrass Bass Player of the Year 4 years in a row (2009-20012).
